"If there was ever a
time that a dealer or con
sumer of coal should pro
tect themselves, it is our
opinion that this is the
time. Last summer we *
were getting a full car
supply to run the mines
every day in the month,
but this year the greatest
number of days we were
able to work, was four
teen and three-quarters
days, and most of the time
we held down to eleven
and twelve days per
month, on account of car
supply. We see no pros
pects for an improvement
in either transportation
or labor situation."
"With this condition
existing, any buyer of coal
should be able to deter

tee a plan for relief along the lines
suggested by Dr. Van Sickle. In brief
this calls for three junior high schools
a girls' high school and additions and
extensions to Technical High school
sufficient to permitting the turning
over of that institution Into a boys'
high school. The high school com
mittee had approved of these recom

submitted to the school board for final
approval, the high school committee
will confer with the citizens body.
The personnel of the citizens com

Cotton Jumps SI.BO a Bale
After Report Shows Decrease
By Associated Press
New York, Aug. 31. The govern
ment cotton report indicating a con
dition of 61.2 per cent., or the lowest
on record for August 25. and a lint
crop of 11,800,000 bales, was followed
by a violent advance in the cotton
market this morning.
Owing to uncertainties regarding
transportation facilities and the com
paratively high level of prices reach
ed on recent advances, many' holders
of long contracts had taken profits
before the report was issued. A' fur
ther reduction in crop estimated, how
ever, was followed by a heavy rehuying
as well as covering and a broadening
demand from trade and speculative
sources, which sent prices Into new
high ground for the reason.
December contracts sold up to 16.10
shortly after the report was Issued, or
about sl.£o a bale above yesterday's
closing price.

the past few days will insure con
tinued operation of practically all
local manufacturing places for a
period of from one to five weeks at
least, even should the strike tie up
the railroads. In case the strike
should last longer than six weeks,
none of the managers would say that
plant operations could be continued.
Already the embargo placed upon
heavy freight shipments has struck
local plants who have been notified
that no outgoing shipments will be ac
cepted after Saturday night. At Cen
tral Iron and Steel Works this crisis
will be met partly by the operation
of motor trucks which furnish trans
portation for a radius of 50 miles,
should an adequate supply of gasoline
be available continuously.
May Lay Big Number Off
Should the strike tie things up for
a week, managers fear that several
thousand men, at least, would be laid
oft in Harrlsburg and Steelton.
David E. Tracy, president of the
Harrisburg Pipe & Pipe Bending Com
pany, declared this plant is in a posi
tion to continue operations, despite
the strike, for a week or two, at least.
"I don't see though," said he, "how
we could continue linger than this if
freight shipments to and from our
plant should be impaired. We have
a fair supply of material ai ' fuel on
hand and can keep the pla'iii'ln full
operation for at least a week."
Should the strike continue longer
than a week, however, Mr. Tracy said,
operations would have to be curtailed
and probably 500 to 700 men would
have to be laid off.
General Manager Quincy Bent, of
the Steelton plant of the Bethlehem
Steel Company, could not be reached
this morning. It Is the general im
pression at Steelton, however, that the
Bethlehem company would be hard hit
by the strike. About 7,000 men are
employed at Steelton and the daily
shipments to and from the big plant
run into many trainloads.
It is the impression among steel
men that should the strike last three
days, operations in many departments
at Steelton would have to be cur
taiied and many units would probably
be taken out of operation entirely.
This would mean that a large per cent,
of employes would likely be placed on
short time or laid off entirely.
Plant Will Be Consjested
The freight embargo has already
been placed upon shipments from the
plant, effective Saturday night. By
Monday morning, transportation men
say outgoing shipments will have the
yards so congested that movement of
materials to various parts of the big
plant will be a serious problem.
Robert H. Irons, general manager
of the Central Iron and Steel Works,
declared that sufficient supplies are
now on hand to insure partial
operation of the plant for at least two
weeks. The most serious problem to
be met, Mr. Irons declared, is to ob
tain an adequate supply of coal.
Should the strike last a week, Mr.
Irons said, it would be necessary to
close down the plate mills and con
serve the coal supply for the open
hearth, or steel making department.
Such a step would necessitate laying
off of about 700 men, he said.
Operation of the open hearths for
an indefinite period will be insured by
placing motor trucks in operation to
haul Dolomite —the mineral used to
line the furnaces—from the quarries
near Bainbridge.
Tin Mill Can Work Three Weeks
General Manager John Gray, of the
Lalance-Grosjean Manufacturing Co.,
declared present supplies would in
sure operation of the tin plate mills
for three weeks after which the plant
will probably close down. This would
throw 260 men out of work.
Smaller manufacturing plants will
be even harder hit and conservative
estimates by businessmen place the
number of men, aside from striking
railroaders, who will be forced to quit
work in Harrisburg and Steelton at
between four and five thousand,
should the tieup last more than a
[Continued From First Pa^e]
this method should the railroaders
walk out.
Meat Supply Limited
The meat supply, however, is lim
ited, but with the help of farmers in
the county there will probably be no
shortage. Groceries on hand will last,
it is estimated, for several weeks, and
fresh butter and eggs, although scarce,
can be furnished by farmers near the
city, many of whom attend the mar
kets each week.
Big bakery managers announce that
the present flour supply will last a
short time, but that a large order is on
the way, and should this arrive before
Monday the local supply can be con
tinued for several weeks. As a large
amount ot bread is shipped from the
city, this supply also would be turned
back if the railroads cannot handle
the shipments.
Produce Market Tightens
If the railroad employes strike, food
prices may soar, even though the sup
ply is sufficient. This will apply par
ticularly tfc vegetables, potatoes and
fruit, as the produce market has al
ready tightened.
The gasoline supply, however, is
not assured. Automobile owners are
advised by wholesale dealers to save
as much as possible, as the orders to
regular retailers are being cut almost
ill half so that the present supply will
not be exhausted too soon. To-day
will be the last day that gasoline wiil
be hauled on the railroads, according
to the embargo, and wholesalers stated
that it is necessary to cut down stand
ing orders. Retail dealers have been
advised also to save as much as pos
A large shipment of hogs was re
ceived here this afternoon by Swift &
Company. These are to be killed im
mediately and kept in storage, it was
said. In case of a strike, this will
probably be the last shipment of the
kind to be received for an indefinite

Acid Stomachs Are
Common Smur Advice by ■ Distin
guished Specialist
"Acid" stomachs are dangerous be
cause acid irritates and inflames tha
delicate, lining of the stomach, thus
hindering and preventing the proper
action of the stomach, and leading to
probably nine-tenths of the cases of
stomach trouble from which people
suffer. Ordinary medicines , and medi
cinal treatments are useless in sucl*
cases, for they leave the source of tha
trouble, the acid in the stomach, as
dangerous as ever. The acid must ba
neutralized, and its formation prevent
ed, and the best thing for this purpos*
is a teaspoonful of bisurated magnesia,
a simple antacid, taken in a little warm
or cold water after eating, which not
only neutralizes the acid, but also pre
vents the fermentation from which
acidity Is developed. Koods which or
dinarily cause distress may be eaten
with impunity if the meal is followed
with a little bisurated magnesia, which
ran he obtained from any druggist, and
should always be kept handy.—Ad vers
